Losing my mind


So currently Im a stay at home wife, actively looking for employment ever since I PCSed with my husband to California in April. Im literally driving myself crazy because I spend about 95% of my free time (when not job hunting) looking at baby clothes, furniture, etc.. reading TTC forum posts and looking for information that may help me get my bfp- especially since I got on meds last month to help me get AF and O. Lately FBjust depresses me because everyone and their mama are posting pregnancy announcements and ultrasound pics. Any other stay at home ladies having the same issue? Lol all my other hobbies dont seem to interest me anymore!

Heyas. I'm not a stay-at-home wife, but I know what you mean about getting TTC crazy and becoming disinterested with hobbies. I'm trying to force myself to be positive and less obsessive with this, but it's SO hard. I also hide ppl on FB who are PG/new moms because it was depressing me. I even had to back off of buying baby clothes after that last AF no-show because I felt so hopeless until I got back on track and started the Clomid.

Patience is not my virtue.

OMG ttc is an addiction. I don't feel like doing anything,i just want a BFP. Charting,reading forums is making me crazy.I am not interested in anything and when i have nothing to think i just think is anything wrong with me or my DH? Why is it taking so long? When AF shows up i feel depressed.I just hate this phase of my life.I hate FB for the very reasons you both are.

Couldn't agree more with u ladies! I work full time and still manage to spend day n night obsessing especially that work isn't too busy lately... This is not cool I wish there was a way to keep ourselves occupied! :/

Exactly! I hear about an issue another couple is experiencing and I obsess that it could happen to me and then I spend hours researching. The thing is I'm tired of obsessing but it's like I'm stuck in this rut and I can't help myself. When I was still working (back in April) it was never this bad... I really need a job to occupy myself.

I thought about blocking my FB friends who are happily pregnant but I can't make myself do it. I mean they are still friends and it's not their fault that they got pregnant and are happy. I'm worried that I am going to get depressed because of it. I was looking at a friend of mines pictures...she's in her 8th month and she puts of weekly pictures, I actually started to tear up because I want it to be me and I'm scared it won't happen.

It's nice to vent and know I'm not alone but ladies this stress can't be good for us!

I know the stress is supposed to work against us; the theory is when most couples "relax," they end up conceiving. Both my cousin and my friend told me they didn't get their BFPs until they started to relax. But the longer it goes with no BFP, the harder it is to relax.

Plus, my friend said she wasn't even paying attention to her cycle when she got her BFP finally, but I can't disregard all of the info swimming around in my head! I will always notice EWCM, will always know what CD I am, especially taking Clomid!

I think as long as we aren't too stressed, it'll be fine. Lots of ladies on this site are TTC crazy and got their BFPs!

This stress is really no good, but how does someone not stress something they want so bad and have no answer as to when they will have it? You shoul just hide those fb friends that's what I did to a few of my fb friends who are preg except for my close friends

I agree with Chris how not to stress for something which i want so bad TTC is a vicious cycle, i wish there was some rehab for not going crazy during ttc, i would have joined .I really need to stop stressing.After trying a lot i don't stress and symptom spot in my TWW .
